It was hard to tell from the middle of things, but it felt like about 2,500 people marching along Georgia St. today to the Vancouver Art Gallery to demand government action to confront the housing crisis. The largest group converged on Burrard and Georgia from the Hastings and Main starting point, but those of us who left from Peace Flame Park were a respectable crowd and the temporary closure of the northbound lanes on the Burrard St. Bridge went without a hitch.
